Founder's Block is a natural progression for Katnook. The wines are genuinely focused on contemporary palates and lifestyle, honest, fruit driven and harmonious.

Parcels of Cabernet grapes are vinified into an approachable young wine, brimming with Coonawarra character. Finished with minimal oak, a component is aged in a selection of seasoned French and American oak barriques.
Deep ruby red, purple hues. An intense nose of blackcurrant and red fruits with lifted mint characters. A small amount of oak maturation lends deft notes of toast and sweet spice to the bouquet. The well structured palate expresses sweet berry fruit and light oak flavours. Ripe dark berries, plum and dusty mulberry characters abound with a hint of regional mint highlighting the lush palate flavours. Fine grained soft tannins add to the attractive lingering fruit.
